The Infinity Courts by Akemi dawn Bowman
Eighteen-year-old Nami Miyamoto is certain her life is just beginning. She has a great family, just graduated high school, and is on her way to a party where her entire class is waiting for her—including, most importantly, the boy she’s been in love with for years.
The only problem? She’s murdered before she gets there.
When Nami wakes up, she learns she’s in a place called Infinity, where human consciousness goes when physical bodies die. She quickly discovers that Ophelia, a virtual assistant widely used by humans on Earth, has taken over the afterlife and is now posing as a queen, forcing humans into servitude the way she’d been forced to serve in the real world. Even worse, Ophelia is inching closer and closer to accomplishing her grand plans of eradicating human existence once and for all.
As Nami works with a team of rebels to bring down Ophelia and save the humans under her imprisonment, she is forced to reckon with her past, her future, and what it is that truly makes us human.
From award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman comes an incisive, action-packed tale that explores big questions about technology, grief, love, and humanity.
Something is Killing the children T1 & T2 de James Tynion IV
Lorsque les enfants de la petite ville d’Archer’s Peak se mettent à disparaître les uns après les autres – certains sans laisser la moindre trace, d’autres dans des circonstances extrêmement violentes – la peur, la colère et la suspicion envahissent l’entourage des victimes et laissent la police locale dans le plus grand désarroi. Aussi, quand le jeune James, seul témoin oculaire du massacre de ses trois camarades, sort de son mutisme pour parler de créatures terrifiantes vivant dans la pénombre, le coupable semble tout trouvé. Son seul espoir viendra d’une étrange inconnue, Erica Slaughter, tueuse de monstres capable de voir l’impensable, ce que l’inconscient des adultes ont depuis longtemps préférer occulter.
En tant que coupable idéal, James avait perdu espoir de se faire entendre au sujet du meurtre de ses amis auquel il a assisté, impuissant. Après tout, ses arguments de défense étaient tout sauf crédibles. Des monstres auraient investi les environs d’Angel Peak et seraient à l’origine des récentes disparitions d’enfants… James rencontre alors Erica Slaughter qui lui confirmera l’existence de ces créatures. S’il n’a pas tout à fait sombré dans la folie, James n’en est pas rassuré pour autant. Mais il dépassera ses appréhensions pour apporter toute l’aide possible à la tueuse de monstres. aura eu le mérite de confirmer qu’il n’est pas totalement fou. La mission d’Erica est de les éliminer, et James compte bien lui apporter son aide. Tout comme Tommy, le frère d’une des victimes. Lui aussi les voit désormais, et ils ne seront pas de trop de trois pour venir à bout de l’invasion qui menace Archer’s Peak.
We Free The Stars by Hafsah Faizal
The battle on Sharr is over. The dark forest has fallen. Altair may be captive, but Zafira, Nasir, and Kifah are bound for Sultan’s Keep, determined to finish the plan he set in motion: restoring the hearts of the Sisters of Old to the minarets of each caliphate, and finally returning magic to all of Arawiya. But they are low on resources and allies alike, and the kingdom teems with fear of the Lion of the Night’s return.
As the zumra plots to overthrow the kingdom’s darkest threat, Nasir fights to command the magic in his blood. He must learn to hone his power into a weapon, to wield not only against the Lion but against his father, trapped under the Lion’s control. Zafira battles a very different darkness festering in her through her bond with the Jawarat—a darkness that hums with voices, pushing her to the brink of her sanity and to the edge of a chaos she dare not unleash. In spite of the darkness enclosing ever faster, Nasir and Zafira find themselves falling into a love they can’t stand to lose…but time is running out to achieve their ends, and if order is to be restored, drastic sacrifices will have to be made.
Lush and striking, hopeful and devastating, We Free the Stars is the masterful conclusion to the Sands of Arawiya duology by New York Times–bestselling author Hafsah Faizal.

The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to annoy the crap out of her, but he isn’t as harmless as he seems. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?
The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.
And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.
Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons … See problems one and two.
